Valerie - thank you SO much for the holiday card! We can't seem to take it down despite the holidays being over so it looks like it's a permanent on our fridge for now I wanted to send you some pictures of Reuben since he hit his 6 month mark but it's taking me a little longer to get around to it - better late than never though, right!? He's such a good dog and growing SO fast (55 lbs right now!) We haven't had ANY problems with him. We have even been leaving him to roam freely around the house for the last couple months while we are gone and he's done super! We even came home one day to a snack on the floor that must have fallen from the top of the fridge - Reuben was out but when we came home we found it untouched and unopened. Seriously!! We can't thank you enough for him. Our hearts are so full and we couldn't imagine our lives without him. We take him EVERYWHERE with us. He loves people. He's so good around crowds, too - normally just falling asleep by our feet when we take him to get-togethers or anything. Everyone loves him, too - of course! Some of our friends have even asked about your next litter!!
